Angkor Sankranta, Cambodia
April 13, 2023 - April 16, 2023
The Angkor Sankranta celebration is held annually in Siem Reap during Khmer New Year. For tourists, Angkor Sankranta offers a rare chance to engage in Cambodia’s customs right in the middle of the ancient Angkor temples. Watch traditional folk dances and games, enjoy cattle races, and listen to Khmer music, among other activities. Khmer food also takes center stage during Angkor Sankranta, including the traditional New Year dish Kralan – sticky rice and coconut milk cooked inside a bamboo stalk over an open flame.
